    Take the title of a piece of fiction, rearrange the words in it to be in reverse and use the new title to create a new piece of fiction.

    Examples to show how it's done:

    Fifty Shades of Grey -> Grey Shades of the Fifty

    A story about a group of fifty battle-hardened mercenaries and their actions which more often than not fall into a grey area of morality.

    Lord of the Rings -> Rings of the Lord

    "And the Lord has spoken to Moses: I shall grant the Chosen People these rings to protect them, guide them, to bring them all and in my light unite them."

    Game of Thrones -> Throne of Games

    The year is 2035 and an electronics company has just released a new artificial reality device. A chair in which you sit in and which allows you to have highly advanced lucid dreams. But not all is well, because many who use the Throne of Games become highly addicted and in many cases psychotic.

    Star Wars -> War Stars

    A tale of several Great War veterans who must face the reality of another world war when Nazi Germany rises to power.

    High Score:
    A Void of Legacies: Starcraft

    A revolutionary game released in 2040 that allows you to program the physics of a new universe in real time. Success is based off whether or not sentient life forms evolved from carbon or silicon can survive these conditions. Sold for 430 USD, the price of two cans of Coca Cola.

    Time of the Wheel:

    A multivolume slice of life light novels about Henry Ford. Features the real world effects of politics in America at the turn of the century. - published but never printed.

    Fire and Ice: A Song. A heartbreaking pop ballad written and performed by Hilary Duff.

    High Score:
    A Dresden special:

    Moon Fool - Harry Dresden is hired to investigate whether a serial killer is actually a werewolf, or simply a mortal suffering from clinical lycanthropy.

    Knight Summer - Normally the really crazy stuff takes place around Halloween. This year though, a summer heatwave has brought with it a crowd of people in highly impractical shining armour. Are they really the fabled Knights of the Round Table?

    Story Ghost - The Archive comes to Harry Dresden with a request: to journey to Egypt, and get to the bottom of a spate of ghostly apparitions who appear to originate from the long destroyed Library of Alexandria.

    Masks Death - Being called to examine dead bodies isn't that unusual for a wizard in Harry Dresden's line of work. What is unusual is a body that's been dead for a while, when he's only just finished a meeting with the apparent victim. Could Goodman Grey be back in town? And if so, is he friend or foe?

    Trek Star:
    Reality show about travelling celebrities.

    Harry Potter and the Secrets of Chamber:
    Harry investigates his bedroom. Can Ron's snoring be stopped, or at least reduced in volume? What is that mysterious creaking that sometimes wakes him up at night? Most importantly, what does the girls' bedroom look like?

    Harry Potter and the Fire of Goblet:
    Our hero engages in that most teenage of activities: binge drinking.

    Harry Potter and the Phoenix of the Order:
    Wherein Harry investigates more than one kind of chick.

    Limit Criminal

    Even crime lords don't cross some lines. He's a gentleman mob boss. Parallel to POI, told from the perspective of Carl Elias.

    Kings of the Clash

    The Great Houses of Westeros find a way to combine their natural bloodthirst and Western civility: teams of two, would-be Kings and their Hands, will battle other candidates in a thunderdome competition. Only one weapon is permitted per person. Daenerys and Tyrion are immediately disqualified when the judges decide that choosing a dragon for a weapon is cheating.
